With the launch of this product, Contextvision has extended the scope and impact of its unique GOP methodology. In addition, the new capabilities enabled by this adaptive image enhancement system open new opportunities in the saturated x-ray market.
“GOPView™ XR2-ADi boasts several added functionalities and improved capabilities in comparison to competing products, such as automatic data identification, optimum image density, clearer detail of small structures and, most importantly, exceptionally low noise,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Ranjit Ravindranathan. “This is likely to encourage the rapid acceptance of this solution by both the clinical and radiological community.”
This new technology supports rapid, high-quality imaging, thereby reducing both the need for retakes and patient exposure to radiation. It also reduces equipment usage, hence increasing equipment life. The ADi algorithm also minimises the ‘burn-through’ effect that often occurs during imaging of soft tissue in digital x-rays, lessening the need for additional windowing and levelling of images. The problems of density variations are also efficiently handled with this new technology.
“GOPView™ XR2-ADi can be delivered with specific settings and can be optimised for specific anatomies,” adds Mr. Ravindranathan. “It offers physicians and radiologists quick and clear acquisition results with its provision of functional real time information of the anatomy.”
The ability to provide such fundamental patient diagnostic profiling simply and rapidly will boost adoption by OEM manufacturers’ systems integrators. With GOPView™ XR2-ADi, Contextvision has effectively addressed the pressing need for a technology offering reduced noise, improved contrast enhancement with dynamic range compression and lower radiation dose. This has, in turn, promoted the availability of clinically more effective and safer diagnostic equipment.
“Its potential can be gauged by the fact that several major OEMs have accepted this technology and have incorporated it into their offerings,” concludes Mr. Ravindranathan. “The GOPView™ XR2-ADi‘s extensive capabilities will benefit the entire imaging market, as well as confer considerable market advantage on Contextvision.”
